I am a Fields Postdoctoral Fellow for the Thematic Program on Teichmüller Theory at the Fields Institute, from July to December 2018. Previously, I was a PhD student at the University of Warwick.

I am interested in mapping class groups of surfaces, and particularly in various graphs and complexes on which they act, such as the curve complex. In particular, I have been thinking about large scale geometric properties such as hierarchical hyperbolicity and the coarse median property.

From January 2019, I will be a postdoc at IHES.
